CNET: Network Associates adds Linux product

“Network Associates, which has focused almost exclusively on
software for Windows NT, is adding a Linux version of its CyberCop
Scanner tool for probing networks to detect security
vulnerabilities.

The company said security consultants and companies that test
the security of networks have shown great interest in Linux-based
security tools. For security audits, Network Associates said
consultants preferred Linux over Sun Solaris by a ratio of about 50
to 1.

“Network Associates responded to our security professionals’
need to use CyberCop in conjunction with several Linux-based Ernst
& Young proprietary security tools,” George Kurtz, director of
the Ernst & Young security profiling services, said in a
statement.”
